    Hello everyone.I am new to this and just curious if you could give me your thoughts on these 6 1/2 week old Orpingtons.I suspect the Black and Blue are Roos and the Lavender is a Pullet.The Black and Blue have much larger combs,thicker legs and are pretty agressive towards each other.The Lavender is fron the same hatch.Much smaller comb legs are thinner.I know it is tough at this age just curious what everyone thinks.Thank you so much!!![​IMG]

    I'm very new to chickens too but I have orps as well.
    I think you are correct on the sexes.

    I agree. My BO is almost 14 weeks old and her comb is barely pink.[​IMG]

    I agree, the Blue and Black are cockerels. Your "Lavender" actually looks more like a Splash and looks to be a pullet. [​IMG] BBS Orps are great!
